Charles River Associates (CRA) Increases Share Repurchase Program by $20 Million


Charles River Associates (NASDAQ: CRAI), a worldwide leader in providing economic, financial, and management consulting services, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized a $20 million expansion of its share repurchase program.

"We remain committed to maximizing long-term value per share through the prudent deployment of capital, including our commitment to return capital to our shareholders while simultaneously investing to grow our business."

The timing, amount and extent to which CRA repurchases shares will depend upon market conditions and other factors it may consider in its sole discretion.
